(Part IV) A summary

If the causal axioms have to work within the parameters of possible answers to the subject of inquiry, we have reason to think that there is a methodological supernaturalism that allows us to extend the principle of causality to the supernatural. IOW, the principle of causality is transcendent in metaphysics because being is self-evidently said of the necessary existent.

The self-evident axiom in play here is everything said of another is first of all the subject it is said of primo and per seThis is a feature of explanation and is not mediated by a casual axiom.
